  1. Blocking power button to prevent thief from shutting down the device. cracked me up!. What if I merely pull the battery, put battery back, boot into recovery, and wipe the whole phone?


    The network method of black listing the IMSI/IMEI would be a great deterrent to phone theft, but even that is being circumvented on MTK phones whose Electronic identification can be altered via software. Easy peasy.

    You lose a phone, it stays lost if the thief is tech savvy. And he will live to use the phone, sell it successfully, or simply cannibalize it for parts.

    With its many advanced features, you’re almost absolutely sure of recovering your lost or stolen device

    No, I don’t think so.

    No mere app can give you that kind of protection.

    By the way, automation apps +like Tasker, AutomateIT and AutomaGic would do ninety something percent of the things listed above, and much much much more.

  2. most people are not as tech savy as you are so lets say there is a 55% chance that you might recover it. but na naija we dey oh. we have way of circumventing through everything

  3. I had considered Cerebus at one point, then opted against it. I’ve learned since then that one of the anti-viruses allows you to track your phone use if the thief hasn’t erased the data.

    Most thieves are opportunists, not necessarily professionals. Which is why you find so many stolen devices being used to take pictures and selfies by the new owner/thief and the pics being available to the original device owner.

  4. I’m not a fan of this. Besides, I don’t care if my device is stolen any longer. I store files and contact on cloud: this way I won’t lose much when my phone is stolen.
